|2016 WATER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM APPLICATION
Agricultural Water Projects
Funding for projects is based on WWDC recommendations and is appropriated by the legislature from the Water Development Accounts. Legislative authorization is required before the WWDC can begin project work. Applications for projects to the Water Development Program must be submitted no later than August 15th to allow review by the WWDC prior to the legislative session. It is helpful if the applications are received prior to the deadline.
Applicants seeking Level I reconnaissance studies or Level II feasibility studies for dams and reservoirs need not be an entity of local government. However, applicants for all other Level II feasibility studies and any Level III construction funding must be an entity of local government with taxing and/or assessment authority. Private corporations and individuals are not eligible for assistance. If the applicant is not such a public entity, indicate what steps have been taken to form such an entity in a cover letter for this application.
Note: If you are seeking Level III funding for an agricultural project, this is the wrong application. You must complete the application entitled Level III Construction Funding for Agricultural Projects and provide a feasibility study with detailed cost estimates prepared by a professional engineer registered in Wyoming.
